Official: Vitality sign misutaaa

Vitality have announced that they have completed their roster with the signing of 17-year-old talent Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier.

The French youngster will take up the slot left vacant by Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin, who decided to quit the team due to the "demanding lifestyle of a high-level professional CS:GO player", with questions remaining about who will carry the baton moving forward after the British tactician's departure.

misutaaa is widely regarded as one of the most exciting young prospects in Europe. Just like his now teammate Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut, he delayed his ascension to a professional level due to his studies and in the past was rumored to have generated interest from G2.

misutaaa is Vitality's new fifth player

He has just two LAN tournaments on record, both of which he finished with ratings higher than 1.30. At the end of last year, he helped Viva Algeria to book a spot at the WESG Finals via the African closed qualifier, boasting a tournament-high 1.29 rating.

The new Vitality roster will make its first official appearance in ESL Pro League Season 11, which is scheduled to start on March 16. In May, the team will attend the ESL One Rio Major, where the team has a guaranteed spot in the New Legends Stage following the playoff run at the StarLadder Major.

Vitality now have:

France Cédric "⁠RpK⁠" Guipouy
France Dan "⁠apEX⁠" Madesclaire
France Mathieu "⁠ZywOo⁠" Herbaut
France Richard "⁠shox⁠" Papillon
France Kévin "⁠misutaaa⁠" Rabier

France Rémy "⁠XTQZZZ⁠" Quoniam (coach)
